Sunday Memo: Drunken firefighters? … Charged 23 years after prostitutes’ deaths … Bee biz

Drunken firefighters: The off-duty firefighters accused in the beating of a homeless man in Pioneer Square last night reminds us of the Bellevue cops busted after they confronted a female Seattle police officer and got into a profanity-laced altercation with a fan and his family in September 2012. In both cases, alcohol apparently fueled the incidents, although this newest one is more serious.

Charges filed after 23 years in the slayings of three prostitutes in Spokane: And a woman is accused of killing them in 1990. Here’s the twist. The woman, Donny Perry, was a man named Douglas Perry when the three women were killed.

Young entrepreneur:  Henry Miller, 16,  of Deming has sold a 75 percent stake in his honey company for $300,000 to two rich investors. You go, kid. (It’s a good thing he did. He owed his parents who bankrolled his venture with $150,000.)  The Bellingham Herald has the story.

Weather: Raining a lot out there. Duh. The rain chance drops to 40 percent tomorrow, thank goodness. Conditions are a bit messy in the mountain passes today. National Weather Service forecast

North Cascades Highway: Despite all the snow in the mountains this year, the state says it hopes to open the highway by early May.
